I don't think so.. Its a totally different socket isn't it?

I'd recommend a conroe (of course) Something around a E6600 depending on what you want to spend...

I'm pretty sure you would have to get a new motherboard to.

You would also most likely have to get a new PSU for a conroe+GTX, your basically looking at a building a whole new system..heh.

I think you'd be fine with a 320mb. Much cheaper. The 640MB is only gonna benefit if you are running higher resolutions (maybe not even then).

I personally don't think you will see a performance difference between the 320mb and the 640mb.

You will certainly see a difference from your 7800GT, no questions there. I'd just try an OC your CPU as best you can to get the best results.

A 3800+ oc'd to max is pretty good.

Top of the line AMD is a Socket 1207+ 4X4

I'm waiting for barcelona. The top of the line AMD is the FX line, FX-62 being top dual core socket AM2.

Right now I would go with an Intel E6600 or Q6600 with an 8800GTS 640MB and some G.Skill HZ's and an aftermarket cooler for CPU Oh for MB I would get the eVGA 680i or ASUS 680i
